Rays' Rickie Weeks: Logging first start of season
Weeks is in the lineup Tuesday against the Yankees, batting cleanup and playing first base, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The veteran is expected to serve in a platoon with Logan Morrison at first base this season, so it comes as no surprise that Weeks is garnering a start with southpaw CC Sabathia toeing the rubber for the opposition. Weeks displayed good pop during spring training, so if he can continue to play well against left-handed pitchers (1.010 OPS against lefties in 2016), he could be a cheap source of power in deeper leagues.
